Food Rescue Project and Victoria Foodshare

Farmers Market Coupon Program

Farmer’s Market Coupon Program

We have made a connection with the emerging Victoria Food Network, and a great first result was being welcoming into a regional Food Rescue Project.

The project is an initiative of the Network, Thrifty Foods, Rotary Clubs and the Victoria Foundation.  The objective is to “rescue” food which may otherwise be wasted and direct it to individuals and families in need.  The main focus is creating quick ways of re-directing food with short shelf life including produce, dairy and baked goods.

We will receive $ 12,000 this year which will go towards extra staff time and cold storage. More details of the program will be determined soon.
